National Center for Veterinary Parasitology

Working Together to Meet Global Challenges in Veterinary Parasitology

In the last several years, veterinary parasitology training has declined.  The National Center for Veterinary Parasitology is one of its kind and is housed at OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences.  It was established to:

  • cultivate future generations of veterinary parasitologists
  • advance our knowledge of veterinary parasitology
  • provide diagnostic support and science based consulting to practicing veterinarians and industry partners
  • help ensure continued advancement in protecting and caring for companion animals and livestock with industry partners
  • provide applied graduate and residency training to increase the number of trained veterinary parasitologists available to serve the veterinary profession worldwide.

The Opportunity

The laboratory upgrade is complete and several residents are enrolled and actively pursuing board certification in parasitology. The veterinary center has a long history of having one of the best veterinary parasitology programs in the nation. Supporting this center allows OSU to continue this legacy and more importantly to bolster the field of veterinary parasitology to protect animals and humans from parasitic diseases.
